The Mass Age of Travel arose in the late Fifties and early Sixties as turboprops and jet airplanes lowered ticket prices and brought distant destinations closer. An explosion of delightful new ad campaigns to "Everyman" locations like Disneyland, New York, Chicago, and Las Vegas created powerful consumer brands for the dominant airlines. By far the most successful were the kaleidoscopic, friendly and often whimsical posters of David Klein for TWA.

This magical view of the Hollywood Bowl, a destination that Klein knew well from his time in Los Angeles (first as a student, then through his early career days), is one of his finest examples. A hard-to-find early printing, it features one of the most beautiful turboprops of all time - the Lockheed Constellation. This is a Mid-Century masterpiece.
